NEW the host hotel has changed ownership and is no longer a Holliday Inn. Additionally the group code will no longer work. The host hotel is still at the same place but it's now called the Galveston Beach Hotel. The new management will honor our same group rate BUT you need to call 409-762-1398 to book and get the rate. You can not book on line. When you call you need to mention you are with the "Porretto Beach Hobie group" to get the discounted rate. The rate is $107 Sunday-Thursday and $147 Friday & Saturday. Hotel is located a few blocks from the regatta site.
If you already booked through the Holliday Inn group rate, your reservation should be transfered.
